The Fit

How do you feel about rolling up your sleeves and throwing in where necessary? GLOBE Series’ Marketing Coordinator will have defined roles and responsibilities, but will also work closely with team members in other departments for successful delivery of project elements. The event industry is cyclical in nature, therefore deadlines are hard and hours are guaranteed to be longer in the lead up to events. Flexibility to accommodate this is essential; the flip side – it’s an exciting time, and it’s short-lived.

Our working environment is warm, inclusive, inspiring, and maximizes employee engagement. We take our work seriously and work hard, but we know how to laugh and we do it often. We value your talent, and are committed to helping all team members thrive professionally and personally. Our cohesive workplace is fostered by ensuring as much face-to-face time as possible, but we do consider flex-time and work-from-home options, when appropriate. Because we’re a relatively small outfit, everyone’s opinion counts. We expect our staff to help build the best culture possible to encourage happiness, productivity, and fun.
